Carvedilol oral tablets are used to treat high blood pressure. It can also improve how well your heart works if you’ve had a heart attack or if you have heart failure. Carvedilol is used for treating high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. It is related to labetalol (Normodyne, Trandate). Carvedilol blocks receptors of the adrenergic nervous system, the system of nerves in which adrenalin (epinephrine) is active. Nerves from the adrenergic system enter the heart and release an adrenergic chemical (norepinephrine) that attaches to receptors on the heart’s muscle and stimulates the muscle to beat more rapidly and forcefully.
Carvedilol is used in the treatment of Hypertension (high blood pressure), Angina (heart-related chest pain) and Heart failure.
